The personal essay has never been more popular, with the likes of Lena Dunham and Mindy Kaling breathing new life into the genre. This innovative guide to crafting modern personal essays and creative nonfiction came about when acclaimed author and professor Dinty W. Moore solicited playful writing questions from today's top writers. He then penned witty responses in the format of a "Dear Sugar"-style advice column, illustrating each response with an original, humorous sample essay. In chapter 1, Phillip Lopate asks, "I am curious how you deal honestly with male-female relations in general and specifically your past girlfriends on the page without coming off as a male chauvinist pig," and Mister Essay Writer Guy pens a sage response and example essay dishing--respectfully--on all his exes. Cheryl Strayed asks for advice about her em-dash addiction, Julianna Baggott worries that to be a great writer you must become an alcoholic, Judith Kitchen looks for an excuse to exaggerate the truth to make it more interesting, and so on. Filled with modern examples of the creative forms nonfiction can take--including scribbled cocktail napkins, Facebook posts, and Google Map pins--this gifty little book is a hilarious relief for all essayists, memoirists, and creative nonfiction writers in distress.

Consequently, essays have been incorporated into many of the standard testing programs like SAT (Systematic Aptitude Test), GRE (Graduate Record Examination), TOFEL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and GMAT (General Management Aptitude Test). Though the importance of essay assessment is elevated, the process of assessment using human evaluators is more of extremely labor intensive, time consuming and subjectivity. Hence, automatic essay scoring systems are developed to overcome all these problems in manual essay assessment. Currently, a number of automatic essay scoring systems using different techniques are available commercially or as a result of research in the field. However, most automatic essay scoring systems address English language. Therefore, this study is an attempt to develop similar systems for Amharic language which is the official language of Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
